Why uAspire?

As a first-generation college student, the college application process was extremely overwhelming. When it came to finances, I thought my dreams were already over because college wasn’t going to be affordable. Little did I know help was available and I am honored to work for an organization that sets out to debunk this myth. Having worked with uAspire “back in the day,” I am excited to return working with a team that wholeheartedly strives to support the students and families we serve every step of the way.
